Are you sure you are a democrat??? Because that sounds like something right out of the conservative right wing playbook.Babies and young children are innocents. They cannot fend for themselves. Therefore, it is entirely up to their parents to try to better themselves in order to feed, clothe and educate their children. If the parents thought enough of their children, their own flesh and blood that they brought into the world, they would become productive one way or another or move to a country where they could accomplish that goal. They cannot simply remain complacent and allow their children to starve. But again, God sees everything and in His mercy and kindness He does allow the parents to go elsewhere if they can't find work locally in order to better themselves. The cost of not doing so is quite high especially when it involves children. Yet if it wasn't that way when would parents ever learn how to be truly responsible for their children? God has to set His foot down sometimes with tough love in order to open people's eyes. If people would only understand that this is for their own good they would immediately thank God for the challenge and get on with the business of providing properly for their children.
